I am new to QTP (Just got this position) and know little about it except for how to record basic scripts and to run ones that are already created. We have QTP 9.0 with the Oracle add-in. I tried to run some scripts this morning that have been created and worked the last time they were ran (May 26). When I ran the scripts, they open the Oracle application then act like it is not there. It doesn't login or anything but continues to go through the script without pop-up errors even though nothing is happening in Oracle.
I stopped the script and tried to record in Oracle. I told it to open the site that brings up the oracle application. The application opens and I start trying to record my actions but nothing is happening in QTP. It is acting like the Oracle application is not open and so it is not recording anything.
The scripts I tried to run were working before and nothing has changed. Does anyone have any idea what is going on with my test scripts and why they are all of a sudden not working? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
What is you Jinitiator and JRE version which works with the oracle instance you are working with. You will have to upgrade your QTP from 9.0 to QTP 10.0 as the oracle addin supports only version of Jint 1.1.8 if you are 1.3.0 then QTP 9.0 with oracle addin will not support. We ran into same problem and after upgrading the QTP to 10.0 everything worked fine. Also install the Quick Fix patch once you install QTP 10.0. Contact HP they will provide you with all installation files required.

I'm not sure the documentation is completely right. I had a similiar issue when I tried using QTP with Oracle 10g. My version of JInt is 126.96.36.199 and the documentation suggested it wasn't supported - it actually is supported.
My solution was the following:
Open you Java console and click the advanced tab. In the settings area look for the Java plugin title. Uncheck 'Enable the next generation Java plug-in'
Give that a try. I'm no expert either but that solved my initial teething problems.
Did you have a look at your java control panel to see if the checkbox is ticked?
On your toolbar look for the java icon. Right click it and open control panel. It's worth checking the java tab too just to make sure you don't have more than 1 version of Java enabled on your machine.
In regards to your earlier post that I just now noticed: I tried your suggestion but it did not work. I am also not using the Java addin. I read about issues with that and Oracle addin together. Thanks.
